      1  Jonah, sent again, preaches to the Ninevites.
     5  Upon their repentance,
    10  God repents.

    - the word.

    VERSE 2 
     - Nineveh.
      Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, was situated on the eastern
      bank of the river Tigris, opposite the present Mosul, about
      280 miles north of Babylon, 400 N. E. of Damascus, in latitude
      36 20' N. longitude 73 10' E.  It was not only a very
      ancient, (Ge 10:11,) but also a very great city.  Strabo says
      that it was much larger than Babylon, the circuit of which he
      estimates at 385 furlongs; and, according to Diodorus Siculus,
      it was an oblong parallelogram, extending 150 furlongs in
      length, 90 in breadth, and 480 in circumference, i.e., about
      20 miles long, 12 broad, and 60 in compass.  This agrees with
      the account given here of its being "an exceeding great city
      of three days' journey," i.e., in circuit; for 20 miles a day
      was the common computation for a pedestrian.  It was
      surrounded by large walls 100 feet high, so broad that three
      chariots could drive abreast on them, and defended by 1,500
      towers 200 feet in height.  See notes on Nahum.
